I am from near Lynchburg, Virginia USA. I have been a stamp collector since 1956, when my father started me and my brothers in collecting. He gave out his duplicates and he didn't realize the monsters he created. I collect worldwide, with favorites in many countries, but specialize in India. I collect to 2002, and have stopped there, because that is where my catalogs stop.
I am 70 years old and a cancer survivor. I need two pairs of glasses to see what I am doing, and been a eBay buyer and seller since the mid 1990s. My wife became ill in 2001 and I put my collecting activities on hold until last year. My wife passed in 2015.
I finds collecting a distracton from the pains of life. Great hobby!

Welcome to Stamp Bears!
I've been attempting to collect India for a while now. I hope you'll share some pictures of your collection! Do you have any recommendations on where to get bulk India stamps, either on or off paper? I still need lots of the more common stuff at this point.
Worldwide collector of stamps and covers! I gave up on limiting to only certain countries.
